St Cuthbert in Mellor?

Post date: Jul 1, 2009 11:05:56 PM

Some years ago, whilst visiting the magnificent Durham catherdral, I saw a map depicting the travels of the Lindisfarne monks carrying St Cuthbert's remains around the North of England before reaching their resting place in the cathedral. It clearly shows Mellor as one of the points en route and I've since done a little research on the web to try and discover more about this apparent visit of the great man's remains to our Lancashire village. The only reference I've found to support the map is published here and reproduced below. If anyone knows any more about this facinating bit of local history, please contact me so that we can publish it here.
